Not A Practical Solution

Financial markets might have something to "say" about such a tactic. At least treasury securities are bid on in an open market to determine their "price". I don't think the Fed would "purchase" such a coin because it fears a bond market panic which would destroy the value of its other assets. (The Fed is in business to make a profit after all).
